Museo Universitario del Chopo information
You can't miss the prominent spires of this university-run museum. Parts of the old building, made of forged iron from Düsseldorf, were brought over in pieces and assembled in Mexico City around the turn of the 20th century. Chopo boasts wide, open spaces – ramps serve as showroom floors and high ceilings permit larger-than-life exhibits for contemporary art works. The museum also hosts modern dance performances and screens international and Mexican indie movies.
